Paper Plate Haircuts (Scissor Practice with Kids!)

Does your child have a fascination with scissors?  If left alone, Chuck would probably take a pair of scissors to everything.   Clothes, hair, yarn, paper, wood.... the Christmas tree.  (I've caught him on multiple occasions trying to cut our table.  Eeek! )

Today I've teamed up with the Creative Preschooler Team to share 5 fun ways to sharpen your preschoolers' scissor skills!  (Hee, hee.  Did you get it? Sharpen?  Wah wah wah.)

DIY Toy Car Ornaments

We have a TON of toy cars, trains, and trucks over here.  (Chuck's kinda got a thing for transportation toys.)  And lots of them have open windows.  I was staring at them the other day and realized... wouldn't they make fun (and cheap) ornaments?

Paper Christmas Trees (template included)

Ok.  I know, I know.  I have a small obsession with mini Christmas trees.  I've made Christmas tree advent calendars, trees from pipe cleaners and cardboard, and mini paint chip Christmas trees.  So today's post probably won't come as a surprise to you.  But I just had to share these trees because they're so cute!  And...there's a twist!

We'll be staying in Cali for Christmas this year, so we won't see our family and friends on the East coast.  I wanted to share some Christmas cheer with them, so I made a bunch of Paper Christmas Tree Packs to go into their Christmas cards!   Each pack contains all the materials needed to make a lovely paper Christmas tree!

Why... hello there!

Hi everyone!  Long time, no post!

In case you were wondering, nope.  I didn't fall off the planet.   We've just been crazy busy.  Our Australian family came to visit for 3 weeks and I was also a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding.  So that means that instead of crafting, I had adventures with our favorite nephew...



Hung out with some really great gals...

 


wore a pretty dress...



and celebrated this gal's wedding.



I hope to be back in the swing of things in the next couple of weeks.  Until then, how are you?  I hope that you are enjoying this holiday season, friends!

Pin the Nose on Rudolph Game

Are you looking for a simple way to entertain the kids during the holidays?  Well, today our Creative preschool group has 5 great Christmas activities to do with the kids!

Recently I shared the story of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with Chuck.  He seemed to like Rudolph a lot, so I whipped up this super easy Pin the Nose on Rudolph game from us to try out.

Let's Pin on Rudolph's Nose!
